right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so he has lost the one advantage that he once had. secondly, there were a lot of independent, undecided voters in 1980 who had lost faith in carter and were just waiting to see if they could feel confidence in his challenger. there are so few independent voters. this is an election that's about mobilizing the bases. so going after the independent voter is not a big surprise. having said all that in the memo put out by david axelrod -- >> who is who? >> he's the campaign guru on the obama side. >> right. >> he points out that five of

president obama right now is in a very strong position. >> what do you think mitt romney needs to do? >> oh, i think mitt romney needs to talk about failure and success. mitt romney may not be the perfect candidate, but this president doesn't have much in the way of accomplishments, especially when it comes to this economy. he has to say look, barack obama, you may have succeeded as a politician but you haven't succeeded as a president. i know what it takes to succeed in life, hai've done it a lot i business creating growth and jobs. let's talk about that. >> it does seem in the last couple days his campaign has been kind of trying to make him seem like a warmer guy. i mean, that photo -- >> hes loosened his tie, taken it off. he's laughed a little more. the job for mitt romney clearly is to get in the ring, get in the arena and to show that he can handle these tough issues. he hasn't been specific. he has to avoid talking about taxes, has to avoid talking about the 47%. he has to play offense. and president obama has to make sure that he doesn't play preventive defense. >> just bein

politics. anything could happen. right now the obama campaign is solidly and consistently ahead. tactically what that means is the obama campaign has to convert being ahead in people's preferences to actual votes. since they are clearly ahead a good time to get those votes cast is right now. because thanks to early voting people are casting ballots right now. so this lead that they would in the polls can be turned into actual votes while they're still ahead even if they don't end up being this far ahead by election day. iowa became the first swing state in the nation where voters are actually voting early in person. iowa has these really interesting rules where if you get enough signatures from your area you can ask to have a pop-up polling place. sort of like if food trucks offered voting. obama supporters arranged for a pop-up polling place at the university of iowa today. they had the first lady go to the university of northern iowa. it was not a get out the vote event. rather, it was a much more direct, go vote now event. that had first lady speak, and then they had a univer

polls favouring obama and then reached the scientific conclusion that they just didn't look right. so chambers set up his own polling site unskewed polls.com where he unskewed all the national polls by skewing them in favor of romney, and surprisingly found that mitt actually had a nearly 8 point lead. that doesn't even count the margin of error. and given how many errors romney's made, i think he should get all of it. now no surprise, folks, this feels accurate polling has caught the attention of some gop intellectuals like texas governor rick perry who tweeted, always niles to get unfiltered or in this case unskewed information. amen. if we had only had more accurate polling during the primaries, perry could have dropped out way sooner.

people have already voted. i will say this, i do think this notion that barack obama is a master debater may not be quite right. his best formatis speaking to a large crowd from a microphone. both of them are smart and well prepared and all that. but if you look at some of the republican primary debates, mitt romney did well. if you go in that obama is so great in communicating, you might be surprised. gwen: primary debates had eight people on the stage and tried to yell at the moderator too often, but the question is, who is really the better debater? is it all spin at this point? >> it is all spin. because there is not much going on, there is a bit of a vacuum in the room now. the romney campaign -- governor romney has spent a lot of time practicing. he did five full mock debates. and he has lined up senator rob portman from ohio to play barack obama, the same person who played senator obama four years ago and advisers say he is letting him have it. gwen: wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall? >> it is a final time for governor romney to reset the race or get people to take a secon

screaming, screaming in print that barack obama is a raving socialist. you might be right but you will never prove it. the president does want to regulate corporate activity to some extent but after the mortgage investment con that led to the terrible recession. we need some federal oversight on financial gang centers. the huge mistake mr. obama is making is that he wants to rub the entire u.s. economy from washington. that has gotten him into big economic trouble. blaming the continuing economic mess on president bush is hollow and cynical. it is the president's policies now that are driving economic results. 45 months is more than enough time to reignite the powerful economic engine. more that be enough time. you can't solve all all all the problems in that time. but you can certainly gain some economic momentum it. that has not happened. here are the facts. median income for american households down about 5,000 bucks in five years. very bad. health insurance premiums up 18% in three years. and going higher under obama care. awful situation. gas prices up 106% since mr. obama took of
